Portsmouth Muslim Academy uses the former Mile End Chapel (Baptist) on Old Commercial Road. SU 644 012. © Jim Parker. Another view, and a "Memorial Stone" for 1884, the date on which building commenced. Both © Martin Richter (2019). According to the Wikipedia entry, the Baptist Chapel replaced an earlier one of 1802 on Clarence Street, and Mile End Chapel was in secular use for many years after its closure in 1920 (when the congregation moved to Copnor Baptist Church). Grade II listed.
St. Andrew's Royal Marine Church at Eastney was dedicated in 1905. It was closed in 1973 and converted into flats. © Ian Thirlwell.
St. James at Milton, consecrated in 1913. © Ian Thirlwell. Link. The previous church (1841) was built on the same site. Seen here in a postcard from Judy Flynn's Collection, it was previously in the "Unknown" section, and identified by Brian Curtis and Simon Davies. Proof of its identity can be seen in the Google Earth view of the present church, and comparing the pillars and wall with those in the postcard.
